Best Skimmer - Only One I Use featured

Installation and Operation Easy to install in-sump. It takes up about a 9" by 10" space in the sump, so make sure you have room, but it's not a problem if you have a properly sized sump. Assembly consists of plugging a couple of pipes together, slapping the pump on, attaching the airline tube and putting the cup and lid on top. Regular operation is great, almost set-and-forget. It has a good sized cup which generally needs to be emptied every 2-4 weeks. The adjustment of the level in the chamber is my favorite part. It is just a vertical pipe inside a tight-fitting sleeve from which the water returns to the sump. The water level in the skimmer will be right at the height of the pipe. Simple but genius.


Performance vs. Expectations This definitely isn't the best advertised brand of skimmers, but they get great reviews consistently, and those are well deserved.


Value for money Best I've found. I maintain tanks for a living, and this is the only skimmer I use on larger tanks. The have a good variety of sizes so there's one for almost every tank. You could pay a lot more for a skimmer that performs the same, or worse, but not better, in my opinion. Again, a good variety of sizes, so there's one for everyone.


Customer Support No reason to call customer service so far. I do know that they make all their replacement parts available, which is nice.


Liked about it 1. Level control is perfect, doesn't respond to evaporation/water level.
2. Produces anything from a thick, muddy product, to a watery, tea-like skimmate, depending on the overflow adjustment.
3. The pump is pretty beefy, compared to others.


Didn't like All I can say here is that I would NOT recommend the gate valve add-on. It ruins and complicates a perfect, simple design.

great skimmer

Installation and Operation Installation was a breeze and it is really powerful for its size. Instructions were easy to use and once set up all I have had to do is empty the collection cup and it keeps plugging along. I clean the cup once a week on a 90 gallon reef tank.


Performance vs. Expectations I had read quite a bit from different sources and I have to say this product matched or even surpassed my expectations.


Value for money Considering the price...you get a great skimmer for a great price. It's not extremely expensive compared to other skimmers.


Customer Support Haven't had to deal with the company at all yet because I have not had any troubles.


Liked about it ---Easy to set up and get running.
---Doesn't require too much attention. I clean the collection cup once a week and I am good to go.
---Very quiet operation and man does it pull out alot of skimmate


Didn't like I don't have any complaints. This is a great skimmer.

ASM G2 Skimmer

General Old technology is sometimes better.
Single pump versus multiple pumps for recirculating skimmers.
Great value for those on a budget.


Liked about it Perfomance is excellent out of box.
Easy to adjust with gate valve modification.
Maintence is easy.
Great performance for price.


Didn't like Must purchase gate valve and impeller mesh mods separately.
Mesh mod for impeller must be hand made.
Need to keep sump volume constant with ATO to prevent overflow or under performance.
Collection cup can be hard to open.
